About

I joined the Department of Social Work and Social Care in 2013 and  have held a variety of roles within the Department and Faculty.  I am  currently the Department's Lead Tutor for Learning, Teaching and Assessment and I co-ordinate Teaching Observations across the Faculty. I am both a registered social worker and a lawyer, and teach across both disciplines. I qualified as a social worker in 1992 and specialised in work with children and families. I later studied law at Kingston University and was awarded an LLB with first class honours, and then gained an M(Res) Law, Culture and Identity from Birkbeck College. Previously, I studied English at the University of Stirling and Social Work at the University of Aberdeen. I am  also an accredited mediator.
